4:31 pm
to finish her b.a. and decided she would go to get her masters. technically, i was slated to be the first ivy league graduate in my family but she beat me to it. >> i always felt that if you want children who are well rounded and intellectually curious, you have to engage or at least expose them to what is happening in the world. i thought it was very important for my children to see and understand about the world outside of their home outside of their community, and the way of exposing them to that world was this city. by the time he was enrolled in the parish school, i think that there was one other black family

as a symbol this country's race problem is solved. it's not. it has always been the case, though, that as a basic tradition in our community, a choice has been made to not let that problem deprive us of living fully human lives. that might look like two entrepreneurs with a strong in tact marriage and kids that we love and businesses that have good reputations and college degrees. it might look like that. that's what a full human life can look like among other things but as a tradition, we come from a group of people that have decided not to be denied that, and just because we achieve it, doesn't mean that the problem never existed, if anything, it means that the achievement is that much more. >> i love that his mom made sure

so they had those interactions in terms of prejudice and racism and coming from georgia or louisiana to california. my parents experienced the integration. they had their school burned down as a result of integration. just really having those conversations with my brothers while they're out and driving and especially when they first got their car and licenses, what to do when you get stopped by police. what to do when you're out and about. my dad was big on making sure you respect authority because he didn't ever want anything to happen to his kids while they were out of his care. >> back then, it was even though we -- people -- we got into a place of integration. there was segregation was going away. we live in a very segregated community. carson was very segregated. we went to private school. it was all wlihite school. i begged my mom to let me go to the local public school up the street. just because i wanted to be -- i started to come into my own and
4:47 pm
know i wanted to be around people that looked like me. when i had to reflect on wow, i never had a black teacher. i don't know what that would have been like. i always wondered what would it have been like for me to have a mentor, to have somebody that i looked up to that looked like me? i think that's why it's so important now for us to make sure we hire and retain black teachers. that's so important. growing up to not see somebody that looks like you, you look up to other people. you look foroth other things. i had to stay in school. i loved school. i loved learning. i took my kid to ucla. i found a child care center on campus. my dad was a little upset with me. he didn't talk to me for a couple weeks. he drove me to the welfare office and dropped me off. he said you'll get on welfare. i had to do what i had to do for my kid. through my welfare i paid for my kid's child care and get an apartment and just able to live.
4:48 pm
you know, even though i lived with my parents, they let me know they wouldn't support me financially at all. they weren't going to watch my kid. i wasn't going to drop my kid and go into the streets. it was me and him every step of the way. so really showing him this is what hard works look like. when i walked across the stage at ucla, he walked with me. really just instilling in him this is hard work, this is what struggle looks like. this is what perseverance looks like. this is what we'll get through together. >> it's been a huge inspiration to see a single mother,mother,mh teenage mother at that get her bachelors, masters, doctorate, become a principal and superintendent for lausd and it's just it's spirie inspiring guess. i could never pay that back to her no matter how much money i get you know what i'm saying?
4:49 pm
[ laughter ] >> our goal right now is to be unapologetic how we service our black kids. black kids are the lowest performing kids in our district and state. they are the most highly referred to special ed. highly suspended. so it's time. it's time to really start to look at our different cultures. there are so many different cultures in l.a. we're a mixture of so many different things. so we have to begin to teach the different curriculums. we have to lean ourselves into that so that way everybody can feel valued. we don't want compliant children. we want children who will question the thinking. we want children who are going to push the envelope on w we're doing what we're doing. i think our kids will be more at an advantage because they really are understanding why they're learning, why they're doing what they're doing and having conservations in class. they're in groups and pods.
4:50 pm
they're not just in silos. listening to each other. they will be good listeners and we teach our kids don't just wait for your turn, right? a lot of times we're listening to people but not really listening. we're waiting for our turn to speak and process. i never heard you. we want our kids listen to what the person is saying, repeat what they said so that they validate and i think we don't do enough of that in our society. we don't validate enough and hear them enough. we're creating those types of thinkers. a lot of times we want to ignore the stories that happened in the past and we can't keep ignoring them. we have to talk about them. we have to talk about the hurt. the pain has to come out so strong that people really feel it, whether like i said it happened to them or not and grow from it because we can't heal or grow if we don't addres it. if we don't know where we've been, we don't know where we're going.
